Default JBGold build thread

Figured I would put this on here not only for you all to see but so i can realize how far the truck has come

Close to when i got the ranger


My first ever mod Brush guard

And yes i put that on in the snow on Christmas I really wanted it on

Underbody leds went on not long after(good Christmas)


Lights on the brush guard almost immediately 2-3 days i think


Sound system(not to bad still deciding on how to face subs)


Probably one of the stupidest mods I did Make shift light bar out of Pvc It did the job (Improvements were made like shrinking down)


Lights went on top


first offroad trip pretty boring alone


decided to put some door lights or puddle lights however you want to call them on(How To)


friend thought his expo was taller than me proved him wrong


Expo roof rack on


lights


more lights


How she sits now(day)


How she sits now (night)


Any constructive criticism is welcome

Looks good dude. Yeah, it looks better with the lights on the roof rack rather than the pvc pipe thing lol.
